Upgrade NetBeans version?

Hi,

I was wondering if it is possible to for me to locally upgrade the Netbeans build that comes with JME platform?

I constantly have reference errors for junit and junit4, a bug that was solved in Netbeans 7.3. Discribed here: http://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=198739 ( I have had the issue for ages, and it is a reoccurring annoyance. )

On another note, what version of Netbeans is the SDK including? Should this not be listed in the ‘About’ window?

Cheers,

NiHal

Press the “Resolve” button when that error comes up, ne need to wait for an update ^^. The SDK runs on the same platform base that NetBeans 7.1 runs on and no, I would not recommend running it on any other version. You cannot “update” to another version either, we have to build the new application.

Okay, I will wait for the next build of the SDK then. I have tried to resolve it using the resolve references wizard ( as also suggested in the bug report ), but it is unable to download and install junit automatically. Since I am not using junit atm, I have just created two empty libraries named junit and junit_4 - to silence Netbeans.

The bug was introduced in version 7.0, so it is def. in the current build.

The templates do not have the junit reference anymore, it can only really appear when you create other projects but jME projects in the SDK. I would also just remove the junit libraries from the project instead of making global dummy libs.

Good point. just did that. The projects I have were all created long ago, so they still had the junit references.

Hi, sorry for bring up a pretty old thread, but I do think the netbeans version should be upgraded. The got system isn’t working. The problem is fixed in netbeans 7.2 or 7.3.

Goat system?

Why did I watch that? And what on earth DID I just watch?
Edit: dafuq?

I’d like to chime in here and vote for Netbeans version upgrade. The Git fixes in 7.4 might fix my issues connecting to Bitbucket.org

So what is the current version of NetEbans Platform in JME?

I get some errors when I try to install plugins from Neuroph from
http://neuroph.sourceforge.net/neurophstudio-uc/updates.xml
, which is for NetBeans 7.3.

They are installed without any issues on NetBeans 7.3

Thanks.

Upgrading to the next netbeans is always on the list - it’s just not as simple as pressing a button. Thy will be done - just not yesterday.

I’ve been working with NetBeans Platform, what needs to be done, maybe I can help?
I need that for the project I’m currently working on.

Update: Just got sources from http://code.google.com/p/jmonkeyengine/source/checkout and built it with NetBeans 7.3.1 everything went ok. Are there any known issues that I’m not aware of?

What was the purpose of this exercise? The current release version of the SDK uses NetBeans Platform 7.3.1 too.

The purporse was to install additional plugins from http://neuroph.sourceforge.net/neurophstudio-uc/updates.xml
With downloaded JME it always failed with some known NetBeans exception, and with plain 7.3.1 NetBeans it worked. Probably 7.3.1 that JME is using, is missing some update.

Then the update would be downloaded. If not, the dependency isn’t properly formulated for the plugin.

I’ve tried again with fresh install of JME Platform on 64bit Linux Ubuntu.
Again the same issue, if you google it a lots of reported bugs with same message:

The Plugin Installer found problem timeout of loading Wizards
[org.neuroph.netbeans.wizards/1.0] while install the following plugins: …

Tried install of plugins http://neuroph.sourceforge.net/neurophstudio-uc/updates.xml on plain NetBeans 7.3.1 and it worked.
Tried install on JMEPlatform I built from sources and it worked.

I dont think it’s a plugin dependency issue, because then it would not work on plain NetBeans 7.3.1 either, nor rebuilt JME.

Probably rather the used JDK in conjunction with your system, if you build the SDK yourself the system-installed JDK is used, you can do this in the SDK too by editing jmonkeyplatform.conf

Sorry to bump such an old topic, but I just wanted to confirm this issue and clarify the fix, because I had trouble finding the solution. On a fresh install of the SDK, I could not install any plugins in Netbeans or perform recommended updates. It was not limited to the neuroph plugins mentioned above (I tried jUnit and gradle for example). Only jUnit gave an error during the instalation, the others failed to load when restarting Netbeans.

As normen suggested, the problem was the JDK included in the jMonkey platform. Once I changed the line jdkhome=“jdk” in the file /etc/jmonkeyplatform.conf to point to an installation of JDK 1.8.0_31, everything seems to work fine. Since it doesn’t seem to be a common problem, it may be related to my OS: I’m using Linux Mint 17.1 64-bit, based on Ubuntu 14.04.
